Default Utec Abc

Bought a UTEC and it did not come with a ABC Y piece or a ABC.

I read some threads where you do not need to have this installed, but the guy was seeing some boost spikes and knock problems.

Will the UTEC be able to control boost without the ABC or do I need to go out and buy one.

Also, is it safe. Thanks

Regarding the ABC: You could just upgrade to the GM BCS and enjoy quicker spool as well as not needing the ABC anymore. $50, IIRC, which is cheaper than an ABC.

I run the GMBC and a TurboXS Dual stage BC for some on-the-fly flexibility. Their DSBC is designed in a similiar, bleed-off manner to the ABC, inline instead of t'd... But I don't even need the first stage with the GMBC.

The ABC wouldn't be a fix for spiking or knock, it'd only hurt that if it were installed and opened up any. Closed it's 'invisible'. Those issues need to be tuned out. Raising the UTECs gain setting to lower spikes, and reading the heck out of Mick-the-Ginge's PDF on tuning for the knock, should those arise.

And the T fititng for the ABC can be replaced with any T fitting from the parts store.
